Great for keyboards monitor mixer!

Seriously, for $50? I'm putting this in my PA gig bag primarily for use as a keyboardist monitor mix.It's perfect. Typically, most players bring 2 keyboards for organ/piano and which I generally run through a DI box to the FOH PA. A typical monitor send for their keys with vocals is a tug of war, as most players want control over their own mix. Many will opt for their own powered speaker or keyboard amp, which works, but they still need a monitor to hear vocals, and frankly there's not always space for both. With this little mixer, it's a breeze to give the keyboard player control of their own monitor mix. I'm sure there will be many more situations I'll be pulling this from the gig bag, but for $50 I can't go wrong!


Small and handy...

Works great, but...

Typical great Mackie quality & features, but it only has 15v phantom power. The CloudLifter CL-1 mic activator won't work as it requires 48v. Will be exchanging it for the Mix8 w/48v pp.

Great Basic Mixer

I have two 15" PA speakers which in conjunction with the mixer we use for a temporary Bass Rig. It does the job quite well. 4 outa 5 five stars because the damn thing doesn't have a power switch.

It's OK.

The chief advantage of the Mix5 is the balanced main outs. That's unusual in a $50 mixer. It's pretty stripped-down-looking for a Mackie product, though that's not exactly a surprise, given the price. Just don't expect anything brick-solid, like the 402VLZ4.The Mix5 doesn't have any noise Issues that I can tell. It seems to be a direct competitor to the Behringer 502, which gives the impression of being a nicer unit, frankly. The Mackie board will make a decent bench test unit, though.
